The following procedure explains how to print batches of checks for payment.


  • You have selected the Checks for Payment option and set other required parameters on the Per Document tab in   Administration   System Initialization   Print Preferences  .

  • You have set the print-related parameters for each house bank account in   Administration   Setup   Banking   House Bank Accounts  .


  1. From the SAP Business One Main Menu, choose   Banking   Document Printing  .

    The Document Printing – Selection Criteria window appears.

    1. In the Document Type field, select Checks for Payment.

    2. Specify all other required parameters and choose OK.

  2. In the Print Checks for Payment window:

    1. Deselect the checks that you do not want to print.

    2. Verify that the Next Check No. value is correct; change, if necessary.

  3. Load the printer with the correct check pages or blank paper and choose Print.

    The Check Number Confirmation window appears.

  4. Collect the printed checks from the printer and compare them to the checks displayed in the window.

  5. If the numbers assigned by SAP Business One do not match the printed checks, you can change them. Correct the number of the first check and press TAB. The subsequent check numbers are updated accordingly.

    Note Note

    Only checks with successive numbers issued by the same account are updated accordingly. For example, if you change a check number from 999 to 2000, check numbers 1000, 1001, 1002 and so on are updated to 2001, 2002 and 2003.

    If the check numbers are not successive, you must correct each one manually.

    End of the note.
  6. By default, the print status of all checks in the window is Unconfirmed; change, if necessary.

  7. Choose Update or OK.


  • The numbers assigned to confirmed checks are marked as used.

  • The Next Check No. field in the House Bank Accounts – Setup window is updated.

  • Check numbers used for overflow printing are marked as voided.

  • The numbers assigned to checks with a print status of Unconfirmed cannot be reused, unless you reset the status to Not Printed.
